I dont think so!
Pacquiao is wired to dominate fighters who rely heavily on the left hand.
Pacquiao being southpaw focuses on taking away a conventional fighters left jab and hook. If you cant throw and land the right hand with force and consistency, you become easy pickings for a physical southpaw dynamo like Pacquiao, just see the MAB, DLH, Hatton, and Cotto fights.
I said on this very board weeks before the DLH fight that if Pacquiao's weight on fightnight was within 8 lbs of DLH's, he'd destroy DLH worst than MAB!
MAB at his best would have to catch Pacquiao at his worst, and even that might not be enough!
